"Through the painstaking steps of our proprietary Seed to Seal production process, we produce the best, most authentic essential oils in the world. We are committed to providing pure, powerful products for every family and lifestyle, all infused with the life-changing benefits of our essential oils.

Our community of wellness started small in 1993, when D. Gary Young and Mary Young developed their first organic herb farming and distillation operation. At the time, Gary Young had already discovered the incredible power of essential oils, but because the quality of available oils varied so greatly, he’d been unable to fully harness their potential. Mary’s previous experience in the direct-selling industry enabled the Youngs to fulfill their vision and establish a business that would empower its members to share truly pure essential oils with the world."

Young Living Founders, Gary and Mary Young

“So how much time have I spent doing this? I have spent 34 years researching essential
oils; 33 years traveling and studying aromatics, including to Somalia; 24 years farming
and wildcrafting in 10 different countries; 24 years distilling aromatics for essential oils;
and constructing 11 distilleries.

So the background in essential oils and the work is not something I just dreamed up
last week or last month or last year and thought it sounded good and created a
business out of it. A lifetime of my work has gone into creating what we have today
and taking it to the world. It’s exciting to see the results; it’s exciting to see people’s
lives change.”
